raw energy bars

I absolutely, love, love, love, these raw energy bars. They are packed with protein, fiber, healthy fats, vitamin E, vitamin B, calcium and the list could go on and on. All of that mixed with just the right amount of honey makes these the perfect snack for kids, after a good work-out...basically for anyone, any time of day. I will usually double this recipe and keep one batch in freezer and one in the fridge.

1 C almonds or other nut(chopped if not using a food processor)
1/4 C sunflower seeds
1/4 C flax seeds
1/4 C unsweetened coconut
1/4 C carob chips
1 t or more cinnamon
1 t vanilla
1/4 C almond butter
1/4 C coconut oil (melted)
1/3 - 1/2 C honey (a 1/2 C makes them pretty sweet...I usually do 1/3 C)

Combine all dry ingredients and process until desired nut size.

I chop mine pretty fine for my nutbars.

Add in wet ingredients, process until mixed...

...and you're done!

Press into a small off with shredded coconut.

Keep in fridge or freezer (they will get gooey and won't taste as yummy at room temperature).

A great idea for kids is to roll them into balls and then roll them in the coconut.
